Follow-Up

June 28, 2012

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. – George Bernard Shaw – What do you do after you’ve had a conversation with someone? Do you just walk away, assuming that it’ll be taken care of in the same way that you think you communicated it? There are two things wrong […]

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

June 25, 2012

When people focus on what can be done, rather than what can’t, they align to create a positive team environment fueled by sustainable momentum. – The Power of Teamwork by Scott Beare & Michael McMillan I remember learning about the experiment that involved a teacher telling all of her blue-eyed students that they were very […]

June 4, 2012

Many people have heard of Mac Anderson’s book, 212º. Have you? If not, I would suggest that you take the time to explore this very simple, yet effective, concept. For those of you not familiar with the concept, here is a quote that the entire idea is based on: At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, […]
